Recommendations for headphones to record

Question

peedenmark7    107

Finally getting around to finishing up the pre production recording  project I began last fall and am finding I absolutely need some type of quality headphones to do vocal recording.

Over ear, closed back, no batteries, etc.

I've done some reading and at least at this point feel I don't need anything over $200 , but that may change ,  for now I am looking for recommendations and keeping things simple.

Using a Korg D3200 digital recording studio with an Alesis Monitor One as the reference amp/speakers.

 

The phones I've seen the most feedback on in order are:

 

Audio Technica ATHM50X

Sony MDR7506

Beyer Dynamic DT770

Sennheiser HD280

Shure SRH8407

V Moda MD1200

 

 

Thoughts on the above ?

 

thanks, for looking !

 Unfortunately my studio is just a corner of a room at the end of the house.  Open back's bleed lots of noise in my house with two kids and a wife who loves her news and book tapes.   Life is learning to deal with the adjustments.

Maybe these?

If she complains about the $499 price, just answer that that's the cost of coexisting with news broadcasts and listening to books on tape. Or she could get hew own pair of  headphones.

the K240s are NOT closed back, I have the K240 Mkii and I needed to buy something else to stop the bleed through back to my mic, especially recording with a click or drums.

the K72, K52 and the K92's are the "budget" closed back guys. 

A very good point. Sorry I missed that.
